Last summer, CJAM FM held a similar workshop in collaboration with our friends at Safe Bar Network & we received a really positive response from participants. CJAM FM believes this ongoing community building and learning is so important as we strive to create safe, inclusive spaces for all. With so many events going on this summer & folks emerging into the world again, we thought this was an important conversation to continue.

Art Alley and Foundations of Canada grant reveal in downtown Windsor

Supported by the Government of Canada, Foundations of Canada, and the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation, CJAM FM will now have technology items to rent out to our community members, including
~ laptops
~ tablets
~ at home microphone kits
~ DJ controllers
~ Go-Pro cameras
~ access to industry-standard recording software


On May 27th 2022, CJAM FM joined the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association in their newly unveiled Art Alley for a press announcement by the Windsor-Essex Community Foundation, along with other Windsor-Essex grant recipients.

With COVID still presenting barriers to access, CJAM FM will now have equipment available for rent to our Windsor-Essex community members! Purchasing technology has been a struggle for campus/community radio across Canada and this grant has given the station a tremendous boost in being able to outreach to even more volunteers – increasing the number of new voices on the airwaves.

Additionally, visiting CJAM & our space on the University of Windsor campus isn’t always easy so bus passes will be available to lower the transportation barrier.

New Equipment at CJAM FM

What’s in the box!? (Kojak for scale)

Through support from the All-Star Gaming Association at the All-Star Gaming Centre, CJAM 99.1 FM has been able to make some major upgrades to our live-on-air studio! With this funding, we have been able to purchase a new board. Our volunteers and staff can now use industry standard broadcasting equipment every single day and with this advancement, we will be able to host four microphones, where previously we only had access to three, increasing the amount of voices on air. The equipment also has the ability to connect to laptops and tablets, a function that was not previously available with our 20+ year old equipment.

~new Lightning console

Staying up-to-date and relevant in the quickly changing world of technology has been a struggle for campus/community radio stations across Canada. The staff and volunteers at CJAM 99.1 FM couldn’t be more excited to use our new equipment knowing we will be broadcasting at an expert level for years to come! We’ll be making the switch on May 28th & May 29th so please bear with us as we go through some changes.

Kojak the Dog & the CJAM FM team thank you for your continued support <3

CJAM 99.1 FM Presents: How to Have a SAFE Night Out Workshop

Concerts, house shows, and house parties are beloved because they allow people to connect while creating a fun atmosphere where people can relax, enjoy themselves, socialize, and celebrate. The reality however, is that on any given day, employees or attendees of these settings may see people who are uncomfortable, or unsafe while not knowing how to help. 

This month, CJAM 99.1 FM is partnering with the SAFE Bar Network for a ~free~ online workshop. How to Have a SAFE Night Out will be taking place on Wednesday August 11th at 6pm EST on Zoom. Join an open conversation about safety, and the entertainment industry – and it’s relationship with alcohol, sexual harassment and misconduct.

learn how to …

  • notice concerning behaviour
  • interrupt effectively
  • provide support
  • active bystander skills
  • create a comfortable, safe, and fun atmosphere that everyone deserves

As concerts, house shows, house parties, and clubs pick back up, let’s work together to perpetuate a culture that is comfortable for all. Registration is FREE and open to everyone. No prior experience required.
